Eintracht Frankfurt returned to winning ways with a 2-1 Bundesliga victory at Union Berlin.

Bas Dost and Andre Silva scored second-half goals as Eintracht claimed a first win in four games, with Anthony Ujah managing a late consolation for Union.

Union went close to taking a fifth-minute lead when Kevin Trapp saved Marvin Friedrich’s effort with his legs.

Eintracht, who lost to Augsburg and Arsenal before salvaging a late draw against Borussia Dortmund last time out, took command as the first half wore on and Silva saw his close-range header pushed out by Union goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz.

The deadlock was broken three minutes after the restart when Gikiewicz could only palm Filip Kostic’s shot into the path of the lurking Dost.

Silva then scored his second goal in as many games to make it 2-0 after 62 minutes.

Djibril Sow broke down the right and sent over a perfect cross on to the head of the Portugal striker.

Trapp produced a full-length save to deny Sheraldo Becker, but Ujah set up a grandstand finish when he lashed home four minutes from time.
